You’re walking through the park. The sun is shining. The leaves are green. Flowers are blooming. Signs of the seasonal transition to spring are all around. The other less fortunate red flags? Your stuffy nose, itchy eyes, lots of sneezing, and coughing.
Some turn to daily allergy pills or even shots to alleviate these symptoms, but don’t always have success. Now, with the help of springtime allergy drops from The Center for Allergy and Asthma, you can stop the symptoms before they ruin your walk in the park or other favorite spring pastime.
Why are spring allergy drops an effective alternative to shots and other forms of medication?
For patients with severe allergies, including springtime allergies, sometimes medications are not enough. Our drops, which are only taken during the spring for 3 to 4 months, allow patients to enjoy the season with much reduced allergy symptoms. If the drops are started one month before spring, they will help reduce symptoms by as much as 80 to 90%.
Who is a candidate for the drops?
Anyone who suffers from spring allergies not controlled by medications is a candidate for drops, including most children ages 5 and older, as well as adults.
Are they as effective as other methods?
Allergy drops are generally as effective as shots.
Besides the obvious, what differentiates allergy drops from allergy shots?
By taking drops, patients aren’t required to come to the office for each dose. This helps the patient reduce allergy symptoms typically in one month, rather than over several months.
What’s in the drops?
The drops are designed for spring allergies and are composed of purified proteins from tree pollen.
What types of allergens are the drops most effective against?
Allergy drops can be effective on all types of allergens including spring trees, fall weeds, dust, grasses, mold, and pet dander.
How does the price of drops compare to that of other allergy treatments?
Spring allergy drops are not as costly as year-round drops or shots. Each patient is different. The best way to get an idea of cost is to call The Center for Allergy and Asthma and schedule a consultation.
Where can the drops be purchased?
Spring allergy drops are sold exclusively at The Center for Allergy and Asthma.
What is the best way to find out if I am a candidate for the drops?
Schedule an appointment at The Center for Allergy and Asthma as soon as possible so a plan can be made before spring.
